Yes, according to usleep, it is. But when I reboot into my win2k 
partition to use the device, there is also a long delay, albeit, it 
doesn't let me know what's happening, so I assume it's doing same.

The last time I timed it, it was 27 seconds without a prompt.

I haven't looked at the code, but maybe it could query the eeprom to see 
what the revision is, then skip the firmware upload if it doesn't need 

If the box is up 24/7 normally, the delay isn't so bad; but using 
FreeBSD, I'm just not used to that big of a lag - you're right - 'kind 
of scary'.
